About this image

A rare image of the Moon from me. Captured with Sharpcap during a Zoom meeting of nine members of the Lincoln AS Imaging Group. It was used as a live demo of capturing and processing lunar and planetary data. As I am not experienced with lunar imaging I had a couple of other members (also BAA members) to assist and advise when I got stuck. We went on to do a quick process in Autostakkert and Registax 6. May have overdone the wavelets as there is some noise if you look too close.
